Re: Wikipedia is not an appropriate topic for TekScopes. WAS repair tools: Autotransformers/variacs

TekScopes is "All about classic Tektronix test equipment, its use, repair,
and collecting".

What do comments and opinions about Wikipedia have to do with TekScopes?

Discussions drift because people make statements others don't understand and the explanations often go far afield. It is inevitable.

I was not aware that discussion on TekScopes was restricted to the cognesceti. If that's the case then I certainly don't belong here.

I own 8-10 pieces of Tek gear and about 20-25 pieces of HP gear. And no significant experience with any except for a pair of 106s and a 465. And my recent 11801. It was simply outside my budget until a couple of years ago when old age set in.

"Collecting" test gear borders on being offensive to me. It seems to be a TekScopes obsession. I've never seen an "is an xxxx worth restoring?" post on the HPAK list. These instruments were made to be *used*, not worshiped.

If TekScopes is going "technically correct" I'm simply going to stop reading it.
